“Great views, very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

You must visit this little jewel of a wine farm in Durbanville. Lovely olives, and wines. They have lovely views from their stoep all the way to Blouberg. Their food is very tasty and you have to have their signature stone bread!

“Very bland burger”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Not sure why we returned to Hillcrest, since the last meal we had there did not impress us either.

However, this Sunday we did. I ordered the Double Cheese burger. It was one of the most bland horrible burgers I've had in my life. The pattie was overcooked and clearly frozen before. Battled to choke it down (very dry).

And then to add. When my wife wanted to confirm which was the lamb and which was the beef burger, the waitress touched my burger by lifting the bun to look at it!

At R82 a burger you are better off going to Steers.

“Best steak for reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

I took family visiting to the Hillcrest Restaurant which is situated on the magnificent Hillcrest Wine Estate. We were pleasantly surprised by the great view and were delighted with the reasonable prices on the menu.
The greatest surprise was the succulent sirloin steak I had. Each and every one in the group
was happy with their choice.

The seating outside under the umbrellas are ideal for families with children as there are lots
of room to play around.

Highly recommended.

“Great experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

The food and service is great and the little shop is definitely worth a visit for any olive/olive oil lovers. The view is amazing and really makes you appreciate the surroundings.
